The exchange and local cabinet have now been connected for superfast fibre broadband. If you wish to take advantage of the new connections, please speak to your internet provider (or shop around) for provision of fibre broadband. We are currently making arrangements with BT for them to host an evening session on Digital Inclusion, which should help answer any questions for those of you considering the move to fibre broadband. More details will be announced once arrangements have been made
